Transformers Movie Masterpiece Megatron is the most expensive MPM release so far and it seems we now know why. This bad boy is massive. Several Seibertronians sent us word of a picture surfacing on Instagram, coming from phamduc, showing his size comparison to other recent Megatron toys. He turns out to be more than a head taller than Takara's MP 36 Megatron, who himself was a leader class toy. And he isn't only taller, he is beefier too, just a much bigger toy overall, with the Siege voyager not even reaching his crotch.

This also gives us a good look at his finalized deco, which is covered in silver paint, or so it seems. Let us know what you think of this toy and if this picture has changed your mind in getting him.

Alas, no change in my opinion. What an eyesore - still looks like a pile of used Brillo and making it bigger doesn't help any. But don't let that stop anyone else. If you like the look, go for it. Me passing this one by only means more for the rest of you!

He's pretty impressive so far. But I want to see more angles of the in-hand product and I'm looking forward video reviews to see how he transform.

The reaction to the previous image posted regarding MPM Megatron got mixed results. Some thought it was the perfect example to all that was wrong with the Bay aesthetic, and inserting Jurassic Park gifs of Dr Malcolm looking at a big pile, while others had the following response:

Well, Kanrabat, the gods heard your prayers and delivered. A few users sent these images in and since the source would rather remain anonymous we will simply post the images below. They include images of the robot mode compared to the CG model, shots of the accessories being wielded, and images of the space jet mode. The person who received the toy said that it was very well articulated and felt very hefty. There is indeed die cast in select areas, such as the feet. As always, feel free to let us know what you think!

I am very happy for you. They updated my first ever Transformer a few years ago and it is such a poor update that I wouldnt call it an update at all and more of an homage.

Man oh man is Movie Masterpiece Megatron getting some love tonight!

After getting several rounds of in hand images and size comparison, we have a new advertisement for the figure licensed by Hasbro. This advertisement is a stop motion video, and over the course of this short video, we get some awesome stop motion shots of Megatron breaking free from the cryogenic ice and transforming to escape the Hoover Dam, as seen in the original Transformers 2007 Live Action Movie.

This video came to us from the 變形金剛同樂會 Facebook page, and you can view the video in all its glory below! Let us know what you think of the next Movie Masterpiece figure, which will be due out in August of this year, below!

How curious it appears the allspark cube isnt the same as the previously released die-cast one, none of the glyph's match the positions

Ignore the sketch of Mad Mew Mew from Undertale

This figure looks really good, given what they had to work with. However I can't stop thinking that he looks like he has the Cybertronian version of Epidermodysplasia verruciformis :-?

I probably said this before,but this Masterpiece reaffirms what I tought for a long time.
Movie Megatron design is one of most imposing out there.When its said he controls the Decepticon faction through tyranny,you can feel it.

The eyes of the toy look better in thee pics than the the stock photos.

An excellent by HasTak! :APPLAUSE: :BOWDOWN:

The Transformers game intro shows thiis design in a brief,but in a menacing way.

Man, he looks sooo good. I’m tempted to just say “fuck it” and get all the MPMs instead of sticking with just Movie Autobots.

Ah, fuck it. I’m probably gonna cave. GOD knows I have weak will when it comes to toys.

jeebus that is a chunky Megatron! :O
If I had the money to collect MPM's I would so be doing it right now.
I'm hoping the eventual Studio Series version of this Megatron will be a sufficently acceptable scaled down copy as much possible. :)

And I love Jazz more everytime I see him (transformed correctly). :)

Man, the size to price ratio on Megatron is pretty outstanding. To see them say how tall he is is one thing, but seeing how tall and bulky he is compared to other MPs really is impressive. For $160 I feel like we're getting our money's worth. What I really want to see is him next to Beast Megatron because I think they're probably very close in size. Who'd have thought we'd get a group of MP Megatrons and MP-36 is the little one?

Okay, now I think I'm sold. Not only this Megs is ridiculously detailed and painted, the backpack is amazingly compact for what it will become in spaceship mode.

And for once, the 2007 Megs is getting love, not the redundant ROTF one.

Good grief, he's HUGE!

He looks awesome- the robot mode is more or less spot on and the vehicle mode is as good as a physical transforming Knifejet is ever going to look. I wish he had a nice "grimy steel" paintjob like his movie model but at the same time it would probably scratch to hell and back if they did that. He looks a phenomenal toy at any rate.

One thing that would have been nice is some clip-on ice pieces so you could display him in "stasis".

I'm pretty sure some 3P guy is already on it.

Is he shorter than the first G1 Masterpiece Megatron though? The tall skinny one before they revised the MP scale to a more consistent size?


Damn I love this one. The figure looks better than the old promo pic it's recreating the pose of.
